Well, I suppose this had to happen eventually. At least all the transfer speculation / discussion about Gini now has a home.
According to the Guardian’s Andy Hunter:
No bid has been received from Barcelona but the Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf, which has close links with Koeman, claims the former Netherlands manager wants to pair Wijnaldum with his international teammate Frenkie de Jong in midfield.
Barcelona’s interest in Wijnaldum could have implications for Klopp’s attempts to sign Thiago Alcântara from Bayern Munich. Liverpool have a longstanding interest in Thiago, who is expected to leave the European champions, but are likely to have to sell a midfielder before finalising a deal for the 29-year-old. A Wijnaldum exit would clear the way for Thiago’s arrival.
So although there has not yet been a bid made, if one of the Guardian’s leading lights is bothering to write about the likelihood of a bid it would seem that one is imminent.
